Look what I got today!! 638 little glass bottles from one of my most favorite places to order from: American Science & Surplus. They set me back a whole $16.95. How could I not buy them? The only downside to this whole transaction is that I simply cannot figure out why there are 638. They came all sealed up nice and neat and wrapped in bubble wrap so I'm assuming that's the way they come from the manufacturer but why 638?? It's driving me crazy!! It's not even divisible by 12! How insane is that??!! And...now this will really bake your noodle...technically I did not receive 638 because 2 of them arrived broken. 2 out of 638 is not bad at all so I decided against demanding my 4/100ths of a cent back. Here's the noodle baking part: Because of the 2 broken bottles, I received 636 bottles which IS DIVISIBLE BY 12!!!! 636 makes perfect sense!! Maybe they knew. Maybe they intentionally calculate 2 broken bottles per shipment so that their customers will receive a logical number of bottles. Or...maybe I'm undermedicated.
Assuming I can ever work past the math nightmare, I'm going to make something fabulous out of these. Well, not all of them but a good portion of them. I saw some cute necklaces on a Facebook page that were made from these little bottles and I want to try to make my own version. Of course, I will most likely go completely overboard and end up with something so huge and bulky it can never be worn but that's okay because there's a word for that. It's not "mistake" it's "object d'art".
I worked on Kaelei's paint chip book a little more last night. I made a page with library pockets on each side for some of the samples. I want to make at least 2 more pages like it with empty pockets for her to fill up any way she wants. I've also decided I want to cover it in fabric and attach handles so it will be easier for her to carry. At the rate I'm going she'll be getting this for Christmas 2015.
Uumm. That's all I have to say. The end.
